Burkhead's now seen 30 carries over the past two weeks, but it's translated to just 67 rushing yards. There's very little upside to rostering Burkhead at this point other than a desperation fill-in play.

Rex Burkhead once again leads Texans' backfield in touches

Houston Texans' RB Rex Burkhead rushed 12 times for 27 yards and caught all three targets for 27 yards in Sunday's loss to the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead averaged just 2.7 yards per carry Sunday. While his volume is appealing, it doesn't seem like his efficiency will fill the void left by the Mark Ingram trade. Whether or not Burkhead will remain the lead-back remains unknown, but he could be a dart-throw-add in deeper leagues due to projected weekly volume.
